Largo do Guimarães (Guimarães Square)

Largo do Guimarães (Guimarães Square) Review

Much of the activity in close-knit Santa Teresa takes place around its village-like squares, among them Largo do Guimarães, a social hub that frequently hosts street parties. The informal restaurant Bar do Arnaudo is a popular hangout for the neighborhood's artistic types, and Cafecito is nearby. If you follow the tram track 1.2 km (¾ mile) northwest from here you'll come to Largo das Neves (Neves Square), with its picturesque whitewashed church. Families and other locals gather in this square until late at night.
